(NEWS10) — In a now time-honored tradition, coffee giant Starbucks has unveiled four brand new holiday-themed coffee cups for 2018, available in stores on Friday, November 2. Customers can also get their hands on a limited-edition reusable holiday coffee cup for free.
Starbucks says it looked to the past for inspiration this year, delivering cup designs that celebrate “the spirit of yesteryear, with a modern twist.”
This design features stripes of bright red, cranberry, gold and Starbucks green, a play on the contrasting colored seams on the back of each retail bag of Starbucks coffee.
Starbucks says the ripe coffee cherries and green leaves on this cup evoke both traditional holly imagery and Starbucks’ “coffee heritage.”
The red and white retro houndstooth pattern on this cup is reimagined in flame, a nod to Starbucks’ Christmas Blend espresso.
The repeated star in this design was taken from an illustration originally used for Starbuck’s Christmas Blend coffee in 1999.
Limited-Edition Red Reusable Cup
This Friday, November 2, Starbucks is giving away free, limited-edition reusable red holiday cups to any customers who order a holiday drink. Bring the cup back from Nov.3 to Jan 7 for $.50 off a refill.
